Empowering girls in Rajasthan through education.
We are currently working in 27 of the poorest villages of Rajasthan where girls from resource poor households are forced to leave school for economic reasons and are used as labour, become child brides or are trafficked for commercial sex work. This is the level of poverty the families face.
The most vulnerable children are selected for scholarships that provide much needed funds to stay in school. Our scholarships support the cost of books, school supplies, extra coaching, counselling, nutrition and transportation, providing the means and encouragement to be able to get a school education.This is the most effective way of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Thanks to your generous support, we are able to form connections with grassroot NGOs in the hardest to reach communities. We have a presence in these villages through our partners and community members who are equally committed to creating change. This local presence is what makes the implementation effective.
Making sure that every child gets an education
At iPartner India, we strive to work with existing government programs to ensure that every child has access to this free education and is supported through scholarships and re-enrollment programs. iPartner India strongly believes that educated girls are more likely to become financially independent, invest in their communities and empower other women.
Supporting shelters and safe spaces for children to live in
iPartner India works to ensure that children in India grow up in a safe and caring environment, are able to understand and exercise their basic rights – and have these rights protected. Our programs include shelters for street children, day care and night care shelters for children and supporting an orphanage.
Ensuring that children get food everyday
We support shelters and orphanages with their meal programs to ensure that children are assured the nourishment to grow and prosper. Our education programs ensure that children remain in school and have access to the free mid day meals provided by the Government of India. This way we partner with Government programs to ensure that children have plenty to eat.
Our focus area is India. With a population of 1.3 billion, India is home to the poorest on this planet. But with concerted efforts of government and non government organizations, with funding from all over the world, India is also a story of positive change, With your help we will together play a part in this change to give every child a chance to reach his or her full potential in life.
Our team has in-depth knowledge of the country, the social issues and barriers. We also know the available government and social programs available so that we put our efforts to maximize the impact your donation can make in transforming the life of children.
